With a childlike easthetic, bad grammar and enthusiasm Hilfiker’s interdisciplinary printmaking practice acts as both medium and metaphor.
Hilfiker enjoys provoking the time consuming, honoured processes of Etching, to discuss millenialhood, self-contextualization in the age of social media and feminist discourse.
Often disrupting the perfection of an ‘Edition’ with hand scribbled notes she breaks the notion of repeated imagery. Interrupting the established routine to discuss unspoken truths, societal taboos and the mundane everyday.
In this series called ‘None Verbal reactions to conversational interruptions’ Hilfiker is working with notions of stereotypes, conformity and things that go unsaid. Using Photo Etching to integrate digital drawing the process acts as a catalyst to communicate the narrative intention.
